The Great Thomas Sujuk Since: 17.6.02 From: Miami, Florida Since last post: 3629 days Last activity: 3629 days # 1 Posted on 18.4.03 1512.04 Well, the WWE has finally done it. With the inclusion of Grenier and Dupree, they've pretty much become the only Wrestling Federation to include at least one wrestler from every major country. I've compiled a list of which international wrestlers have been in the WWE. NOTE: For the sake of keeping this list short, I'm only listing the PRIME EXAMPLES in this category. USA: Kurt Angle, Lex Luger, and, um... "Mr. America" Canada: Lance Storm, Bret Hart, Chris Benoit Mexico: Los Guerreros, Essa Rios South America: Um... Giant Gonzales? United Kingdom: William Regal Germany: ? France: Sylvan Grenier, Rene Dupree Italy: The FBI Finland: Ludvig Borga Russia: Nikolai Volkov Africa: Kamala, Akeem(?) The Middle East: The Iron Sheik China: ? Japan: Tajiri, Funaki, TAKA Michinoku Australia: Nathan Jones The Islands: Rikishi, Jimmy Snuka, Jamal & Rosey And there you have it. If I'm missing any, feel free to let me know. Please Support The Neo-Geo Pocket Color! Promote this thread!

Wasn't Bruno Sammartino foreign or did he just talk funny? And was Bobo Brazil actually from Brazil? You also forgot the Bushwackers who I believe were from New Zealand. And lastly, Jeff Hardy from Imag-i-nation!
chill Landjager Since: 18.5.02 Since last post: 2940 days Last activity: 2940 days # 6 Posted on 18.4.03 1537.23 Saying that somebody is French doesn't mean they're necessarily from France. Both Grenier and Dupree are from Quebec, Canada. They are French-speaking Canadians.

Not sure if Bobo was actually from Brazil. I don't think The Iron Sheik is actually from Iran either. I remember hearing way back that he was actually some Italian guy from NY.

AIM: # 11 Posted on 18.4.03 1637.02 I thought Nord was from "Norwegia", but I could be getting my bad Verne Gagne ideas mixed up. And lastly, how could we all forget a true hotbed of wrestlers throughout the years...Parts Unknown?
